Formal Request and Granting of Status

Students wishing to receive special status should submit the appropriate form supplied by Academic Management Services (SGA) which can be found on the home page of this site under "Forms" (in portuguese).

Any student who requests but is not entitled to receive special status will suffer the following consequences: all rights associated with that status and any grades received for that year will be anulled and the student will be prohibited from requesting or receiving any special status covered by the respective regulation.

The student will be informed of the approval or denial of special status via email and through Inforestudante.
